About Flame Restaurant

Flame, a Modern Mountain Steakhouse, is the signature restaurant of Four Seasons Resort Vail. Flame’s focus will be “fun dining,” rather than fine dining, as guests enjoy an interactive experience. Prepared by Chef Kevin and his team you can enjoy perfectly seared prime steaks cooked on an 1800-degree grill carved tableside, like the 22 oz. dry-aged Tomahawk steak. And share communally served indulgent sides which are locally sourced and seasonally inspired.

Our server, Andy, was very knowledgeable and personable. The food, 40oz porterhouse and lamb chops were prepared perfectly. It was a very enjoyable evening.

I have been to Flame every year since they opened and this was by far the best meal I’ve had there. Everything was cooked perfectly and the sommelier recommendation was perfect. A must go if you are in Vail.

Hostess was very accommodating. Waiter was friendly but must have been over loaded. Never once asked about another drink or anything. Food was good especially the beef. Sides were so so. Very nice with our 3 year old.

 (Denver)·Dined on February 9, 2018

The service was what is to be expected at a Four Seasons hotel. My husband is gluten-free, and we were offered gluten-free bread to start. The waiter had many suggestions on how to make the varied menu items gluten-free, so that was very helpful. The kitchen is very accommodating and all want to see that one's meal is well-presented and prepared exceptionally well. It was a bit pricey for what we had (2 burgers with cheese, no bun, and a side salad for $70 including tip, water and the gluten free rolls as a starter), but the ambience was great. We came in around 5:30 for dinner so it was very quiet for a Thursday night. By the time we left, it got more busy but definitely the tables were spaced so that we were not distracted by a table of 8 behind us.

The hotel itself is gorgeous, and the staff are absolutely over the top accommodating.

Food was less than impressive especially for the price. We had it all! Appetizers, kids meals, dinner and dessert! The dessert was the worst. We had apple and vanilla ice cream something and it was watery and worst I’ve ever had! Won’t be back! Price for that meal $338

Food was great. Elk corn dogs were fun. The service was good but I often found our server about 5-10 inured behind when we needed her. However when I could decide which Pinot noir to get she poured little tasters if each which I greatly appreciated. You’re paying for good steak and the ambiance but it’s great for a special dinner.

Service was great. However steak was less than stellar. Ordered med/rare yet ribeye was still tough to cut. Steak knives were less sharp than plastic cutlery. A lot of work to cut such an expensive steak, very disappointing. Wedge salad, mac n cheese and Brussel sprouts were great.

Flame is a wonderful place for a date or a family dinner. Attentive staff make excellent recommendations for both wines and menu items. Carved tableside, the 20 ounce dry aged rib eye is great to share for two. Salads are delicious and the shrimp cocktail appetizer is also a good choice. Lovely ambiance at the Four Seasons Hotel. Will definitely be back when in Vail.

Great meal, great service. My husband realized that our waiter (French accent) was the same as the one whose service we had enjoyed about 10 years prior at the Wildflower (Lodge at Vail), now Elways. The menue at the 'Flame. has a relatively small selection, however everything we had was perfect. The bread was really noteworthy - fresh and crusty with slightly salted butter - great with our red wines. We enjoyed the special with 2 meat entrees, one appetizer and one side. The side of prosciutto wrapped asparagus was as eye catching as tasty. Great composition. The appetizer of spinach gnocchi was creamy and we both really loved it. However, both of these dishes were eclipsed by the thick, perfectly cooked pork chop (Heluka pork, not sous vide, we found out) and the very tender beef fillet. The presentation with the 6 different sauces has always been great.

My husband and I are visiting Vail together for the first time. We got in late and wanted a close restaurant to try out (we’re staying near Lionshead). Based on reviews we chose Flame and we were not disappointed! The server was very prompt and knowledgeable. We did the dinner for 2 special they had which was around $80–one app to split, 2 entrees, and a side to split. Everything was delicious but the steaks were absolutely perfect. Cooked exactly as they should be. The wine was also very good. Highly recommend!

I was very impressed with both the service and the quality of the food. the waiter called me by name, was extremely knowledgable, was attentative without being bothersome, and there were several assistants who kept oour water glasses filled and attended to the normal needs
the steak I had was excellent, and well prepared. everything about the evening was first class and I was very impressed, although not surprised considering that it was within the Four Seasons hotel
